I agree with you in regards to the FW gear. They failed to consider the power of a lever. The long gear simply overwhelmed the interior design of the retract mechanism itself. A complete re-design was called for, but economics ruled that out. They had to meet a price point dictated by Tower so off-the-shelf equipment was used.
